About 7 months ago, I had burned myself with a curling iron in the middle of my forehead. i hate the scar so much, i would like to get it removed. Are there any creams or laser removal to get it off? Just something - I'm willing to try anything because tired of trying to cover it up. thank you

Melaquin PM for forehead scars caused by curling iron
A great option for this type of hyperpigmented scar is to use a non prescription cream like Melaquin PM, combined with exfoliation.

Treat scar discoloration with topical bleaching cream
This is more of a discoloration of the scar or HYPERPIGMENTATION.
Use of topical bleaching creams like Tri Luma are worth you time for up to 6 months.
If after that time you have no improvement than consult a plastic surgeon for a more penetrating treatment. Also avoid the sun at all times using sun screens. From MIAMI
I would try Tri-Luma. Any one of its three ingredients might help. Tri-Luma consists of tretinoin ( Retin A), a mild steroid, and hydroquinone. There is probably pigment deposition in your scar, judging from your photograph. If the pigment is not too deep, the Tri-Luma should help.
